I want to bring the unique elegance of porcelain closer to the people. One important element of my work is to make my porcelain jewellery comfortably wearable, while still keeping the unique and precious feel of hand crafted porcelain. For my slip casted porcelain elements, I use Mont-Blanc porcelain, because of its fine texture and pure white colour. I polish the finished pieces to reach a super slick surface, which is nice to watch and wear.
I want to change the way people see porcelain jewellery by creating beautiful and unusual fashion items. A very light look and feel is as important to me, as a perfect and precise finishing. I aim to blur the borders between jewellery, porcelain, fabric and fashion and create an uncommon, contemporary perspective onto porcelain jewellery.
